I dig it. I love the mix of upside and high end talent. Looks like you did a great job in the middle rounds. You're so covered at 3B its ridiculous lol. Someone in your league is going to be desperately searching for a 3B at some point and you can probably get away with murder trading with them.

I'm a little worried about your outfield depth. You're taking a big risk relying on Rios and Hamilton. They could both be 4-5 category studs, or they could be pretty much useless, and you don't have any real backups. I'd beef up my watch list with outfielders, specifically speedy ones. If Hamilton and Rios have healthy problems or problems getting on base, Reyes is your only significant speed threat, and you have a few guys who are well below average at SBs for their positions. Think guys like Cameron Maybin, Dexter Fowler, etc. If Juan Pierre is available I'd snag him up in a heartbeat if I were you, he'd be a solid complimentary piece to Lind just in case Hamilton and Rios falter.

One more question: Why Dotel? He's not gonna steal Save opps from Capps is he? Are Holds a category in your league? If not, it probably makes more sense to grab someone in competition for a closer gig. Its essentially gambling on getting a leg up on the competition if your guy wins the job, and if he doesn't, you haven't really lost anything. Someone like John Rauch or Brandon Lyon or Jason Frasor.

Also, any thoughts on who you're gonna pick up when you DL Beltran? I'd almost certainly grab a speedy outfielder, like I was saying above.

One more: J.J. Hardy is a great sleeper trade chip. Could be as good as some early-mid round SSes, and if Reyes is healthy, he's not really useful as much else to your roster, but he could bring back someone nice. If he has a good April, I'd target someone like Shane Victorino, or maybe an outfielder whose off to a slowish start, someone known to be streaky maybe like Nelson Cruz (if his owner is impatient enough).

Thanks for the reply.

Capps is now the closer for the Nationals. Dotel is the closer for the Pirates.

Oh man, how'd I miss that. Guess I should pay more attention to Dotel.
